We recognise that it is our duty to care for and protect our incredible Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and continue to protect its fragile ecosystem. We are passionate about doing our best to reduce our carbon footprint and encouraging our visitors to do the same, whilst making it as easy as possible for everyone whilst on site.
We are fortunate enough at Land’s End to have a wonderful variety of plant life, constituting 14 broad vegetation habitats including over 220 species of flowering plant and 81 species of Lichen – some rare, all of which are sensitive to airborne pollution, proving just how clean the air is at Land’s End.
Our maintenance team works hand–in–hand with organisations such as Cornwall Wildlife Trust, RSPB and South West Coast Path to conserve the natural beauty of the Land’s End headland.
We hope to keep Land’s End open and conserved for the public to enjoy as it has been since 1066.
